‘What can we do to help at home?’ is a common question I hear in the practice. And to many parents’ surprise, when it comes to babies it is really simple: Focus on tummy time!
I recently had a fascinating chat with our local ‘Baby Whisperer’. She started out teaching swaddling techniques and calming bedtime routines, but lately most of her time is spent counselling families on their eating habits.
A friend recently let me in on her secret to a happy life. That is quite a gift to receive, and I am very grateful.
A common concern in my practice at this time of year is parents worried about their kids’ handwriting: ‘It looks messy and rushed, as if she doesn’t put in any effort’.
Maybe the most important advice we can provide the parents in our practices is to have a healthier relationship with screens for their kids.
As chiropractors, we are not diagnosing or treating ADHD. However, it is important that we are aware of the problems experienced by the child and the family.
In the busy world we are living in, it is vital that we as practitioners remind and encourage parents to take an active role in raising thriving and resilient children:
Please join the movement to further chiropractic care for kids and register and attend The Kid’s Summit in Sydney on September 9 & 10, 2017.
To reach optimum health potential, it is essential to be within a healthy weight range. We as practitioners need to address this with the families we care for.
